Your Gym + COVID-19

Has your gym opened up yet (or maybe it never closed)?

I’m curious to hear what health & safety measures your gym is taking or if things are continuing on with business as usual.

I’m in Massachusetts, so unfortunately my gym is still closed. Hopefully it will reopen in a few weeks.

I do my workout at home last 5 month.

I feel ya Marlo! Same here. Definitely not the same. :frowning:

They opened about 2 months ago. I went in just to cancel my membership. Building a gym in my garage. ATM I have built a power rack. 7’ barbell. 45s’ and 25s’ lbs Olympic plates. Soon I’ll add a DL platform and a Reverse hyper.

Damn, I’m jealous. Having a garage or basement gym is the dream for me. I still rent so it’d be a pretty complicated endeavor for me at the moment.

What barbell did you end up getting?

I feel you. I might have to leave much of this behind for the same reason. I’m finishing up my last year at Uni. So I’m keeping it minimal. I built it. Everything on Amazon atm is garbage. Facebook Market and Craigs list is also up-priced garbage with a 300 lbs limit.
That’s the Barbell. Most of the parts are from Mcmaster carr and the solid steel bar is from a local metal shop.

Wow! That’s super impressive. Nice work


Look no bad. Thanks for this solution. We have a second wave COVID in our state. And now I needed a workout at home.
